Nature Study - Autumn Leaves

We have some lovely Autumn colours in the garden right now, so this week's nature study was on leaves. First the children roamed around the front and back gardens looking for as many different coloured leaves as they could find. They mounted small bits of leaf on some card with double sided tape attached to it.

Leaf colours from our gardens. 

Next we did a sketch in watercolour pencils of one of our most colourful trees.

We searched around the tree for some beautiful leaves with many colours on them. We made a sketch of our favourite leaves.
